I am back in Bougainville after my final holiday and am now in the last quarter of my 24 month contract. Feels great to be back and I am now focused on getting my work completed and ready for a handover.
With elections scheduled for June it is going to be an exciting year for Bougainville. This is the Autonomous Bougainville Government's fifth year of operation, and, if the referendum on interdependence does happen in 2015, then we are half-way towards Bougainville's big deadline.
So, a time of change, reflection and focus.
After juggling too many balls last year I am now concentrating on three projects:
- A briefing to the incoming government on Bougainville's development priorities for 2011-2015
- Completion of the ABG Health Plan 2011-2015
- Completion of policy advice on Crisis Related Grievances
All three will keep me flat out until I finish and I am happy because they are good, solid projects. Will try and keep this blog updated on my work
Hope you had a great holiday and happy New Year!
